Thread Name: any one going to tolpuddle?
Subject: RE: any one going to tolpuddle?
Been going for about 20 years and walking with my Regional and national banner every time. Played there for many years in the house bands and friends. Think I'd miss it?
The thing not to be missed is what it's all about... look for the moment when the Trade Union leaders walk through the village carrying the wreaths for the grave and lay them in the churchyard. It's small, not obvious, but incredibly moving.
There was a reminder that it was on at the Women's TUC conference 2 weeks ago.
